ELEVATE Mississippi is a 12-week incubator.

ELEVATE Mississippi supports Mississippi residents who are small business owners in need of technical assistance to enhance their business operations.  The program provides resources, tools, mentorship, training, wellness support, and connects an ecosystem of Black-owned, LatinX-owned and Native American/Indigenous-owned businesses to thriving community partners who are dedicated to the growth of solopreneurs and microbusinesses. ELEVATE moves businesses from aspiration to application to the achievement of growing from sole operators to a thriving business with multiple employees.

ELEVATE Mississippi is supported through the partnership of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
